The taste of a grown-up summer.

In 2012, Jason Barrett was a 24 year-old working in his great-grandfather’s button-making factory in Upstate New York, just like four generations of his family. But he was made for a different path. Before the year was out, he started a small batch distillery operation in his home town of Rochester.

But he is sentimental enough to have named his new rebel business after the family tradition — Black Button Distilling. Today, four years later, he has developed a range of unique products including a few Gins, their Four Grain Bourbon, a Fernet, two Moonshines, Vodka, and an interesting “Bourbon Cream” liqueur.

Jason likes Gin. He likes it a lot. But this rebel also thinks that Gin shouldn’t “hit you in the face with a Christmas Tree.” To him that means that the juniper needs to be there, but should take a back seat to some of the other botanicals. So in addition to their floral “Lilac Gin,” they have added Black Button Citrus Forward Gin to their line-up with an emphasis on orange zest and local hops. It seems like a small thing, but the difference really works — so much so that Food and Beverage magazine named it the “Official Gin of Summer.”

Not my favorite gin but not the worst that I have ever tasted either. The floral notes were great it just seemed to have a strange after taste.
Also tastes like tequila
